Heidenhain Corp.

The MSR 40 modular rotary position feedback system promises to be a quick way to measure angle on larger rotary axes. Applications for the system include medical technology, general automation, textiles, and auxiliary axes in machine tool and metrology. The encoder provides a 200-micron grating pitch on a steel tape and is suitable for machines requiring motion feedback for a full 360º or a segment thereof, and ±30 micron per meter accuracy. The MSR 40 is available with a minimum diameter of 150 mm to a maximum of 1,150 mm, plus larger diameter versions are available.
